Re-Reading Nabakov

Izmirlieva, Valentina
Re-Reading Nabakov

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Take this class in order to spend a semester slowly sipping one of the twentieth century's greatest literary works. Prof. Izmirlieva is a challenging and vigorous discussion leader who brings a wealth of insight into Lolita to the class. At times she seemed dissapointed by class participation, but she was up for tenure review and understandably more nervous than usual. At the end of the day she is a very smart, very lucid professor who has a passion for Nabakov.


1 in-class mid-term (in the style Nabakov used to give at Cornell in the '60's, so be on your toes to remember every single detail). 1 in-class presentation. 1 8-10 page final paper.
